The US pharmacy chain CVS is notorious for its long receipts that feature discounts for all manner of future purchases of other products, and this has been the subject of much ridicule for some time. You would think that it might have responded by cutting down on the waste. But just yesterday I went in there and bought a single item and the receipt was even longer than I remembered from my last visit. When I got home, I measured the receipt and it was three feet long! Just for a single item!
I’m pretty sure that I am not the only person annoyed by this kind of waste.
